Just use a taxi, they are plentiful at the airport and a short wait if any wait at all. Taxi costs about $26 - $28 to get to the pier, and a flat rate of $24 to go from pier to the airport.

Default Transportation to ship

U can take a taxi. They have a set price from airport to ship. Around 20 dollars. Its about a 20 minute cab ride depending on traffic.

The set price is for the "ship to airport" trip and the flat rate is $24. The "airport to ship" ride is based on milage and runs about $26 - $28.

I always use the RCCL transfer from the airport. The cost is comparable to a taxi ride.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume you haven't flown into Miami nor sailed from there. It's really a matter of whether you want to share a bus ride with a lot of people, or grab a taxi and go.

The taxi ride will be quicker and the price is set as previous posters have indicated. It can be a bit harrowing depending on the driver however. If you prefer a more relaxed ride, AND don't mind waiting for the bus to fill and then wait for your bags to be unloaded amid a sea of bags, then go with the RCI transfer bus.

Either way you'll arrive at the pier where you board your ship!!!!

Taxi is 24.00 in both directions.

The guy on the way to the airport from the pier told me I had to pay the road toll. This is BS because the fare and conditions are plainly posted on the inside of each cab.
Rather than argue with the jerk I just paid it, deducted it from his tip and reported him to the city.
